Silence by Any Means

Eventually, reality becomes real and illusion fades into obscurity. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at different ways the progressive elitists are manipulating facts and, at times, using force to define the playing field in order to avoid debating. Begging the question and the heckler’s veto are two examples of the Left trying to silence dissent. The real battle is over truth and they will fight you with half-truths, incomplete truths, and even outright lies.

Environmentalist and author Tim Ball (www.drtimball.com) has been trying for years to debate the consensus thought on climate change and his detractors have used many means, including lawfare, to attempt to silence him. Dr. Ball describes his ordeal fighting three separate lawsuits meant to bankrupt him and shut him up. The assault on free speech has hit the courtroom.

One example of the heckler’s veto occurred recently in the upper Midwest when progressive groups forced conference centers to cancel already booked events. John Guandolo (www.understandingthethreat.com), President and Founder of Understanding the Threat and a speaker at one of those events, discusses how he and others had planned to educate people about Islam but certain groups didn’t want the information made public.

Have we seen this silencing of speech before? Stephen Halbrook (www.independent.org), Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute, joins us to examine the rise of the Nazi party in the 1930s and their tactics to suppress free speech and confiscate weapons. They ran into problems later, though, in France when pockets of resistance sprang up.

John’s quote of the week:
People with losing arguments – if they have to resort to logical fallacies, if they have to resort to force and heckling because their arguments can’t stand up to the other side, they only have one choice left: keep people from speaking.

In this week’s Section 6, John plays a clip of Diamond and Silk testifying before Congress and looks at different ways social media sites are trying to silence politically incorrect speech. He covers the SPLC’s history of designating hate groups and how they are scaling that back after some pushback. He finishes up with the “new liberal order” spoken about by Emmanuel Macron in his speech before Congress this week.

Absolutely Relative

What news from the Middle East? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and the rumors emerging as to what it might contain. How is Saudi Arabia involved? Will Mahmoud Abbas be happy? If these reports are true, he won’t be. Lesson to learn: when you refuse to participate in a process, you may end up with whatever you’re given. We’ll have to wait and see.

The transition from a Christian moral base to a far left progressive elitist state is trudging along, almost unabated. Philosophy professor and writer Jack Kerwick (www.frontpagemag.com) joins us to discuss the slow deterioration of the West, relative truth made absolute and absolute truth relativized, and the need to fight back against progressivism.

Appeasement has been a favorite tactic by leaders in the West toward brutal dictators. Chamberlain did it with Hitler; the Obama administration did it with Iran. Daniel Krygier (www.worldisraelnews.com), writer and political analyst for World Israel News, highlights the differences between one year of President Trump and eight years of the previous administration. Can our current president succeed in negotiations without appeasement?

Iran has established proxies throughout the Middle East but now there tentacles have reached the Americas. Joseph Humire (www.securefreesociety.org), Executive Director of the Center for a Secure Free Society examines Iran’s influence in Venezuela and calls on America to focus more of its foreign policy south of our borders.

Americans’ rights should be protected, especially during court cases. Christopher Holton (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Vice President for Outreach at the Center for Security Policy, describes the American Laws for American Courts, a policy that would shelter U.S. citizens in court from foreign laws and doctrines, such as sharia. Unsurprisingly, the usual antagonists are coming out against this.

John’s quote of the week:
Postmodernism is very relativistic and exists on a self-contradicting platform. However, while they are professing relativism, in reality underneath that platform they have absolutes which are undeclared.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at the things we put our hope in and predictions for the future that haven’t panned out – like most from the climate change crowd. He goes on to cover politically correct orthodoxy, social justice warriors, and new technology that can make you say things you never have and never would.

Iran So Far Away

Comments from a closed door meeting were all the rage in the news this week. But is it really important? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the underlying issues inside of – shall we say – outhouse countries and the importance of assimilation for those who immigrate here. Why are the media spending so much time dissecting comments and ignoring the real issue of what’s happening in these countries?

In our clip of the week, Dr. Ze’ev Maghen, Chair of Middle Eastern History at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, speaks about the Iran protest as well as Sunnis and Shias in Iran and the Muslim world.

Since the media won’t cover the Iranian protests, we’ll talk with someone who will. Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran joins us to discuss how these protests are different from those in 1979 and 2009 and why the powers that be in the West seem to favor the regime.

Did conservative social media sites have an impact on the 2016 election? John Hawkins (www.rightwingnews.com), head of Right Wing News online, believes they did and now the social media giants are doing all they can to ban or otherwise impede the free speech and outreach of conservative accounts and pages.

Jesus said that Christians would not be popular with culture, but progressives within the church are trying to move Christian thought toward popularity. Author and retired cold-case homicide detective J. Warner Wallace (www.casemakersacademy.com) advocates for stronger teaching of traditional Biblical principles and preparing our youth to defend their faith in secular society and in the church.

Finally, John takes a look at the history of fake news and how we arrived at the somewhat dysfunctional mainstream press we have today. There is a war on freedom of speech and we are all – media and consumers alike – fighters in that war.

John’s quote of the week:
Your religious worldview base will establish your ethics and your morals, which establishes what you view in terms of law, in terms of economics, and in terms of society. You can’t separate these things out – they are all one.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at globalist history and the tactics they use, which explains their hatred toward Donald Trump who fights against them. He goes on to discuss the change in global temperatures away from heating and how the alarmists are pushing us in the wrong direction. Minority unemployment is down – how much of that is attributable to the President? Finally, John examines Christian persecution and no-go zones in Sweden.

Red Warning Lights

Can we honestly say that we are thankful this holiday season? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the saving grace by faith provided by our Savior and it is through that faith that we have our greatest freedom. We have constitutional freedoms in this country as well and we risk losing them when we don’t thank the God who allowed us to live under them. So love God, love one another, and treat everyone with respect. We can all be thankful for that.

Plus, don’t miss John’s annual cranberry recipe. Make sure to have your ID handy when purchasing ingredients!

How does the Middle East chess board, with its complex interacting pieces, look today? Kevin Freeman (www.globaleconomicwarfare.com), Founder and CEO of Freeman Global, points out that economic and geopolitical warning lights are going off in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia, Israel, Iran, and of course the United States.

Why is the 1917 Balfour Declaration suddenly controversial today? Author and retired attorney Rick Richman (www.jpundit.typepad.com) answers that question and explains why a two-state solution always fails, even when a vast majority of demands are met.

What happens when a campus religious group espouses the same beliefs as their religious institution, but is still called a hate group? Ashley McGuire (www.thecatholicassociation.org), Senior Fellow with The Catholic Association, examines political correctness on campus and the denial of first amendment freedoms.

John’s quote of the week:
I’ve been wondering if all of these people screaming about rights and oppression really recognize how well off they are compared with the rest of the world. You want to see oppression? Come with me to certain countries in the world and I’ll show you oppression. And if you live to escape from it, you can tell other people about it.”

This week in Section 6: John discusses the politics behind the recent Roy Moore accusations, how the Clintons have outlasted their usefulness, the Pope’s views on climate change — the Paris Accord, and facts. We’ll also talk about the spiritual dynamic behind much of our current events, and finally, the real tax plan being proposed.
